Note: This module is an extension to the FAST Module - it is only fully functional when used with the FAST Module.
The extended FAST (eFAST) Module allows for the examination of both lungs by adding bilateral anterior thoracic sonography to the FAST exam enabling students to evaluate the thorax for pneumothorax and hemothorax.
With two versions of each image - student and mentor - the user has access to a labeled version of each image. In addition to the mentor version, which provides a standard explanation, the "Instructor" mode allows the instructor to include additional annotations.
The eFAST Module includes four additional windows and the image library includes images and a video of two normal patients and three abnormal patients. The windows include several targets to provide a complete view of each exam window.
